MACBA - Dislocated Archive

The evolution of sexual dissidence is part of a story that is difficult to classify, unify and interpret in an organised way. This difficulty is aggravated by the fact that it is a recent history, one much permeated by the Anglo-Saxon story, where the personal and the collective are mixed through documents, objects and experiences that are dispersed and silenced. On many occasions, these materials are literally in boxes, waiting to be retrieved and organised by a gesture that, while not exactly corresponding to a coming out of the closet, could be read as something similar in the museum context.
This precarious archive proposes an exercise that aims to create a space for the political memory and history through certain events and materials connecting different themes and formats: health and depathologisation, manifestos, graphic and visual production, sexile and the cartography of a distorted geopolitics.
